Default OS map 5m contours

Except it isn't the contours that make the OS maps of the Cuillin

I would say that the black symbols render it primarily unusable, but if
you took them off it would still be pretty close to unusable afterwards
in any case. And that's with 10m contours, 5m it would just be an
orange-brown blob.
